Abstract / Description of output

The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Morphology is an authoritative, state-of-the-art overview the data that have been central to the development of morphological theory in the past decades. Featuring contributions from an international panel of linguists, this unparalleled collection brings together both seminal work and recent morphological research on topics including derivational and inflectional processes, concatenative and non-concatenative types of morphology, and the interfaces of morphology with syntax, phonology, and semantics.

Organized alphabetically, each chapter explores a specific set of empirical data relating to a morphological problem or issue central to both past and current theoretical debates.
